    I'll contribute the $10.00 and buy the factory in Detroit to house it.

    Better find out what this is before you buy one!



    PE
    It says film coater line, although I initially had a hard time conceiving Kodak ever having 18 of them.

    Terrible pics, and looks dirtier than I would have imagined as a Kodak machine. Printing presses and other textile machinery gets gunk all running down the sides looking nasty. I always imagined Kodak kept their machinery all fresh and pretty looking.

    PE
    So which is it, PE - a line used to make acetate base, an emulsion coating line, or something else? Inquiring minds want to know, even if we don't have the $250K minimum bid.

    It would be wild if this was one of the lines once used to make Kodachrome.

    I'd like to make a ridiculous 100$ offer but I'm afraid they'll accept it.

    Something tells me that eBay listing is not genuine.
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    It's a manufacturing line for acetate film base--available now, since Kodak is now purchasing acetate film from outside sources.

    If someone starts a Kickstarter to buy this, I'll be in for $50 in return for the first few packs of film.
    Then should the 'stretch target' be to hire PE to run the damn thing?
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    I imagine to goad PE into standing there running the machine, you'd better have a whip.
    There's 18 of those machines, and dollars to doughnuts those 18 machines will end up being re-named the USS George W Bush.
    No snide political quips please. It was just a joke.
